Walgreens Home Care has expanded its presence in Oklahoma with
the addition of Oklahoma City-based Canadian Valley Medical
Solutions. Walgreens entered the market last year with the addition
of D&T Medical in Tulsa.
Co-owned by Tracey Wills and Jeff Wills, who serves as chair for
AAHomecare's HME/RT council, the 13-year-old CV Medical Solutions
provides HME, home infusion therapy, respiratory services including
oxygen and custom mobility and seating in the state's central and
western regions. The company also offers a program called CV Kids,
which focuses on pediatric patient needs such as specialized
respiratory (ventilator and airway management), infusion, skilled
nursing and customized rehab.
The Wills said they will continue to run day-to-day operations
with their staff at the Oklahoma City location.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
